Both my girlfriend and I had hair transplants with Get More Hair/Cosmedica in September 2018, I had the usual front and back crown (4200 grafts) and my girlfriend had her fringe lowered to cover a childhood scar. What can I say other than thank you to Mike at GMH and Dr Acar and the team at Cosmedica?
We flew into Istanbul late on a Sunday evening and surgery was booked for early Monday morning. We stayed at the comfortable Radisson Blu, just minutes from the airport. We were picked up in the morning by Cosmedica's friendly driver in a luxury people carrier and transported to the hospital, which looked like a hotel, so straight away we both felt very relaxed.
We had the usual check-up and form filling before going in to see Dr Acar for our consultation and deciding what type of hairline we wanted, he drew his plan on our heads and off we went to surgery.
I was in surgery for approximately 10 hours, however, it went quickly due to some administered painkillers (I slept for most of it), it was relatively pain-free, the only thing I felt was the numbing injections right at the start. My girlfriend was in surgery for about 4/5 hours.
After surgery, I was whisked back to the hotel with my neck pillow and medication for a nights rest (GF had been back 4 hours before me). I must say, the neck pillow was my only discomfort (and for the first 7 days after whilst using it, it's just unnatural for a side sleeper!)
The next morning after breakfast we were picked up and returned to the hospital for a check-up and hair wash, given our shampoo and discharged - all very straight forward.
We opted to stay one more day in Istanbul for some sightseeing, which worked out well.
We are both almost a year down the line and couldn't be happier with the results. Mike, thanks for your help, advice and reassurance.
I've already recommended four friends to GMH.
